Hagimit Falls in Samal Island

Hagimit Falls in Samal Island

Tourism is one of the major industries of the Island Garden City of Samal. This island has been gaining popular mainly due to its white sand beaches. But aside from beaches, this place is endowed with the beauty of nature and one good attraction to see is the Hagimit Falls.

The Hagimit Falls is now becoming a popular natural attraction of the island. The falls is situated two kilometers from the Peñaplata proper, the capital district of Samal Island. Hagimit Falls is a secluded waterfall at the heart of deep full grown woods with various vegetation and boulders of rocks.

If you wish to stay away from the pressures of the city’s life, then Hagimit Falls is the best place to relax with friends, family and colleagues. You can build tents along the river banks and filled your eyes with the soothing flow of the water and the humming of birds. You can touch your legs on the fresh water and feel the coldness under the searing heat of the sun. The forest is still unspoilt and covered by the canopy of full grown trees.

    The best way to go to Hagimit falls is by BUS. Take a bus plying through R. Castillo in Agdao and ask the conductor to drop you at Brgy. Cawag at the entrance road to Hagimit falls. From there you may take a hike going to the falls.

    The fare for the bus from downtown Davao to the area is ranging to 50-60 pesos.

    You may also drop from the bus at Penaplata public market or central warehouse and ride a motorcycle to Hagimit falls.

    Hi, just wondering with all the increasing sales in property of Samal island and the increase of housing projects, does now the development in this beutiful garden City of Samal. As Davaoueno’s and local people wouldn’t want to see this place getting crowded and polluted, just like the other cities of the Philippines.
    Manila Bay is so polluted now, Cebu waters is getting really bad as well (in the cities), now everyone is flocking to Mindanao/Davao..Lets’s keep it clean and maintain the beautiful surroundings of Mindanao Island. When nature/natural environment gets polluted-it will take generations to get it back to it’s previously, beautiful, serene state..We all owe it to our children, country and the next generations to come, we do not own the land, let’s take care of it.
    I remember man yrs ago we can always go in an beach in Davao city, and enjoy the ocean, we don’t need to cross to the Samal island, now the waters surrounding the main city of Davao is slowly getting polluted..All the citizens (including investors), and visitors have a responsibility, as well as have contributed to it’s pollution. We must do something to prevent more damage to the island of Mindanao. Development is great with the future and environment conservation in mind.

    This attraction deserves to be protected. I hope the city government of Samal will make sure that the development of this place brought about by the growing tourism activities will not affect the environment.
